Hi, Moms! Our group is focused on getting together for playtime with our kids, giving them (and us!) much needed socialization. A lot of the members are Stay At Home Moms, but working parents are welcomed. The kids tend to range from infants to early-school aged, so a lot of morning time events get on the calendar: while the big kids are at school, the little ones get to hang out!
Our dues are $10 annually, payable online within 30 days of joining. The dues for this not-for-profit group cover administrative costs (such as the website itself), and provides and extra sense of exclusivity and security. Also we'll have at least two parties a year for everyone, including some catering and events for the whole family. We'll look into allocating any extra money into local causes or charities.
We want to get to know you and your kids. We ask that members attend at least one meetup every 3 months, and host one event annually. Just email the organizers to have your event added to the calendar.
Most of our members live in Chicago, in neighborhoods such as Edgebrook, Sauganash and Jefferson Park; also nearby suburbs like Des Plaines, Lincolnwood, Morton Grove, Niles, Park Ridge and Skokie, and our meetups are usually in these areas. Our calendar is full of meetups most months and our monthly events include: play dates at member's homes, bouncy houses, bowling, park outings, pool outings, museum outings, volunteer opportunities,Moms' Nights Out, lunches and many more!
Lastly, we all will have different view points on life and parenting. All members are asked to be respectful of each other. Let's have fun!
